Maecenas XXXV

Save the date for Maecenas XXXV! We will close our 80th Anniversary Season with our spring gala under the Benedum Center lights on May 18, 2019. Tickets coming soon.

Last year, Maecenas XXXIV "definitely hit the high notes" Fanfare, and was “the most glamorous night of the year in Pittsburgh” according Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The Duquesne Club catered a fabulous and whimsical dinner, and we danced the night away to live entertainment, including a special performance by Pittsburgh Opera Resident Artists, as well as The Bachelor Boys.

Maecenas provides Pittsburgh Opera with crucial unrestricted funds that allow us to continue to produce live opera productions and educational programs which are financially accessible to all audiences while training the next generation of great American singers. World-class cities sustain premiere arts amenities, and an organization like Pittsburgh Opera contributes to Pittsburgh's ever-growing presence on the global stage.

If you have questions about ticket or sponsorship information the Maecenas Gala XXXV, contact Michael Braxton, Director of Development by phone (412-281-0912 ext. 259) or email.
